From one crazy bird to another

Hello and Happy Friday!

It’s time for a little inspiration from Team Friday at La-La Land Crafts.  Our theme this week is anything goes.

I was drawn to this Birds of a Feather Clear Stamp Set the moment I saw it as I have a tropical bird.  He is a Sun Conure named Tiki, and will be 19 on the 4th of July….and he can definitely be a loud and crazy bird.

This little feathered friend was stamped on X-Press It Blending Card and was colored with the following Copic Markers.

Body:  W5, W3, W1, W0, W00
Beak & Feet:  YR24, Y15, Y11, Y00, E41

My card is built on many layers using a number of different dies, all with the idea of adding subtle texture.  The patterns that come in the Spring Has Sprung Paper Pack were perfect together.

Thinking of you

Good morning!

The days are finally getting warmer and the sun in shining!!  Oh how I have been waiting for it to be nice enough to want to be outside!  Let’s see if I can keep the deer out of my flower beds this year so I can actually see some of my flowers bloom.

This sweet image is from All Dressed Up Stamp’s May new release and is called Sunflower.  Such an adorable image to work with!

Sunflower

I printed this little cutie patootie on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with the following Copic Markers.

The paper is from my stash and the dies are from La-La Land Crafts and Newton’s Nook.

To achieve the look of the sunflower peeking out of the top of the oval, I colored what is inside the oval and then die cut it.  I then colored another sunflower in it’s entirety, fussy cut it out and carefully glued it on top.

Hope ~ La-La Land Crafts

Happy Friday!

It’s once again Inspiration Friday at La-La Land Crafts.  Our theme this week is to use products from the new release.

Courage Marci is prepared to fight like a girl!  I am sending lots of hugs and hope her way.

Hope

I stamped this little sweetheart on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with the following Copic Markers.

~Copics~
Skin:  E04, E11, E00, E000, E0000, R20, R30, R00
Pinks:  RV34, RV11, RV00, RV0000, R00, R000, R0000
Grays:  W4, W2, W1, W0, W00
White Gel Pen

Hope2

To create the outside ribbon border I die cut 4 of the Awareness Ribbon Die from pink cardstock.  I place the die cuts upside down on a rotary mat used for quilting which has measurements on it so that I could make sure that it stayed square.  I taped the pieces to the mat using Scotch removable tape so that I could glue the corners together.  Once the glue was dry I could then remove the piece and glue it to my card.

I then die cut the scalloped square using the Scalloped Rectangles Die, partially cutting from both directions, moving the die over in order to create a square.   The Double Stitched Squares Die was cut in the same way so that it fit the size of the opening.

Hope3

I knew I wanted to create a shaker card with the Hope Heart Die, but needed the top of the heart to be a little bit thicker in order to add the double sided foam tape without it being visible.  I knew if I matted the heart it would be just thick enough to make it work.

To create the matting around the heart I taped the Hope Heart Die onto a piece of pink cardstock and lightly traced around the outside and the inside with a fine point pencil and then carefully fussy cut it out by hand.

La-La Land Crafts products used on my project today:
Courage Marci Rubber Stamp
Hope Heart Die
Awareness Ribbon Die
Hello Baby Paper Pack
Scalloped Rectangles Die
Double Stitched Squares Die

I miss your face

Happy Friday!

It is once again Inspiration Friday at La-La Land Crafts.  These little sweeties are part of the May new release.  How sweet are these two little sisters from the ‘Hello There Stamp Set‘ waving hello to all their friends?

I paired these little cuties with the window stamp from the ‘Windows and Things Stamp Set‘ in order to create this adorable little house.

I miss your face

All of the elements for this card were stamped or die cut on X-Press It Blending Card and were colored with the following Copic Markers.

~Copics~
Roof:  E47, E44, E43
Siding:  E43, E42, E41, E40
Window:  E47, E44, E43, E42

Grass & Topiary:  YG67, YG63, YG17, YG07, YG05, YG03, YG01

Cat:  W5, W3, W1, W0, W00, R20, R30, R00

I miss your face1

To create the siding I die cut several wood grain pieces from the Fireplace Die and then colored them with the colors listed above.  I used a scrap piece of cardstock as a base in which to glue the die cut pieces to, making sure that I left enough room for the window.  the pieces were staggered to resemble how siding is attached to a real house.  For the roof piece I carefully die cut it so that I could get it a little longer using the same die, just extending it in my die cutting machine.
